Skin Renewal Series: Sagging Skin Skin Renewal Series: Sagging Skin Skin Renewal Series: Sagging Skin

You are more likely to experience sagging skin or a loss of firmness as you become older. Typically, you will see sagging on your jawline and temple area or a loss of fullness in your cheeks and hollowing around your eyes become more apparent after age 40, but these signs can start to appear as early as in your mid or late 30s.

When you are young the deeper layer of your skin, the dermis, produces tons of collagen and elastin. These fibers are like springs that push the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, out. This gives your skin volume, but with time, that collagen production slows down and things you may do throughout your life, like smoke or drink heavily, can further slow down that production and break existing fibers.

Sun exposure will accelerate this breakdown of your skin’s natural collagen and elastin production too. The damage UV rays cause will make skin less elastic and less plump, so that it won’t bounce back as quickly as it once did. Imagine if you pinched the skin on the top of your hand, young skin would spring back to where it was, but more mature skin may linger and hold that pinched position.

The key to skin renewal is hydration. First think of liquefying and moisturizing your skin from the inside, out. Drink plenty of water throughout the day and include foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids into your diet. Salmon, nuts, flaxseed oil and leafy vegetables lubricate your body and your skin from the inside.

Next, apply a serum and moisturizer formulated with hydrating ingredients every morning and night after cleansing. Look for creams that have hyaluronic acid, a great skin renewal ingredient for hydrating and plumping the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in skin that maintains moisture. As you age, your skin’s levels of hyaluronic acid will deplete and further contribute to skin’s loss of firmness. Replenish your skin and boost your skin’s moisture retention by looking for formulas that have hyaluronic acid as an active ingredient, like Revitalift® Daily Volumizing Concentrated Serum and follow with Revitalift® Daily Volumizing Moisturizer.

Moisturizing is always a part of any good skin care routine, but it is especially important when addressing sagging skin. Make it a point to hydrate your skin by using products that will deliver the right amount of moisture and ingredients your skin needs to stay plump and full. Your skin’s renewal is possible if you concentrate on adding back in the moisture it is bound to lose overtime.
